  OCHO PROJECT

Q: Where is the book fair held?
A: The book fair can be held in a number of places, depending on whether or not your school is partnering with another school. If you are a Title 1 school doing The OCHO Project for your own students, you can have the book fair in the media center, cafeteria, or gymnasium. Choose the location in which it will be easiest to display books on tables. If you are a non-Title 1 school partnering with a Title 1 school, you can choose to have the book fair in any of the stated locations in either school. You can also choose to have a class from one school meet in the classroom of the other school.

Q: How many books will each school receive?
A: Schools that receive OCHO grants can purchase one book for every dollar of the grant amount. Additionally, schools that are permitted to collect coins can purchase one book for every dollar that is collected.

Q: How many OCHO coupons will each recipient student get?
A: Add up the total number of books purchased fron the OCHO grant plus the number of books purchased or donated aside from the grant and divide by the number of children in your school that will be participating in The OCHO Project. This will give you the number of coupons for each student.

Q: Is it necessary to partner with another school and how do you find one if you want to partner? How do you find a school to partner with?
A: You do not have to partner with another school if you don’t want to. If you wish to, you can consult with the character education chairperson in your district to find another school that is interested in doing a service-learning project. You can also contact the principal of a neighboring school to explain the program and see if he or she is interested. Be sure to explain the benefits to students at both schools.

Q: Are donations tax deductible and is The OCHO Project a not-for-profit organization?
A: The OCHO Project is a registered 501(c)(3) non profit charity established for the purpose of raising funds and seeking contributions of shoes for the benefit of economically disadvantaged children. Your donations are tax-deductible.
